GM Simen Agdestein on Norwegian TV's 'Dancing amongst the Stars' - only could his protégé Magnus Carlsen demonstrate like fancy footwork were he to possess a breakaway footing chess championship?
Leonard Barden's Guardian column of thirteen Nov 2010 is on Magnus Carlsen's withdrawal from the World Chess Championship Candidates' competition. In the column, Leonard makes this point:
I noticed that Leonard wrote "series" in addition to non "match" in addition to that was in all probability for a expert reason. One deviation betwixt Magnus's vision for the entitle in addition to the 1993 breakaway gibe betwixt Kasparov in addition to Short (or Fischer's possess to play Karpov inward 1975 without FIDE's blessing) is that Magnus doesn't look to last talking virtually matchplay equally a entitle system. In the by it has taken 'two to tango' to railroad train a breakaway gibe - in addition to that has proved quite difficult plenty - only Magnus would bespeak a whole dancing troupe were he to possess a breakaway to conform his aspirations. Perhaps Magnus should essay advice from his onetime mentor, pro-footballer-cum-GM Simen Agdestein who starred inward Norwegian TV's equivalent of Strictly Come Dancing.
